PASC Risk Management Background Checks

PASC Risk Management Background Check Policy
Per US Youth Soccer, EPYS, and the state of Pennsylvania, anyone having routine interaction with children as part of our soccer program is required to complete and submit mandated clearances and complete specified training. All board members, paid coaches, paid administrators, and volunteer coaches are mandated to comply. In addition, PASC requires individuals in titled leadership roles to comply, as well as anyone granted access to member files and contact information as part of their service to the Club. Mandated clearance and directions for complying with them are posted below and questions can be directed to Andre Calilhanna, PASC Risk Management Coordinator, at [email protected].

First, log onto your GotSport account. There are EIGHT clearance documents/procedures you need to obtain/complete to be in compliance.

1) Complete your GotSport profile. Fill in any missing information in your profile and upload a clear headshot.

2) PA Child Welfare History
Good for five years. Go to www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home to complete the process if your certificate expires before 6/30/21.

3) FBI Clearance
A) Affidavit. If you are an unpaid volunteer who currently lives in PA and has lived in PA for 10 continuous years, use the affidavit. It's good for five years — you will need to upload a new certificate if your current cert expires before 6/30/21.

B) Fingerprint Check. If you are a paid coach/paid staff member or a volunteer who does not live in PA or who has not lived in PA for the past 10 years continuously, you need to provide an FBI Background (fingerprint) check. The clearance is good for five years — you will need to obtain a new certificate if your current cert expires before 6/30/21.
